Have you ever wondered what would a Huawei laptop be like? Maybe it has never crossed your mind because Huawei only manufactures smartphones and tablets, but there's a rumour going around online that Huawei is actually working on a new laptop that can operate on Windows and Android.
This information is new to us, so tech specifications are non-existence at the moment. But it would likely use an Intel chipset if they were to produce a Windows OS on it, and accroding to the image above the laptop could be a hybrid version with a stylus. That could be pretty cool and stand out from other laptops if it was true.
